If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. When this feature is activated, a pop-up shall appear each and every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The option may be useful in a number of situations - if only some people must be able to see specific files, if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
